It plays out in the media like a soap opera, full of melodrama, fuelled by one-liners and grandstanding accusations. Australia is influenced by the United States now even more than by the UK, culturally and politically. So, what kind of place is America today? Has the current president changed the way the country operates or has he been able to understand and benefit from the zeitgeist. Julie Rudner hosts a discussion about President Trump's America, and what it means for that nation, for its aliies and for global power.
